This is a transactional dialog which is used when there is more than one entry to be made for the details of more than one ETP received. The Calculator uses the relevant information recorded in these transactions to calculate the ETP offset, if any.
The ELS ETP schedules (PY) may only be lodged via PLS. They may not be lodged as a facsimile schedule. The PY will only be lodged via PLS where there is more than one ETP transaction.

If your client has received a payment in the previous financial year that related to the same employment termination (same employer) or receives two ETPs for ceasing employment in the current year and, added together, they exceed the ETP low rate cap of the current year, then both payments count towards the cap.
If a Death benefit ETP payment for the same Deceased person was received in the previous year or two have been received in the same year - whether or not they relate to the same deceased person - and together they exceed the Death benefits cap of the current year, then both payments count towards the cap.
